DRIVING MANS GTO, 428CI MOTOR, 4 SPEED MANUAL, NICE LOWERED STANCE, CLEAN GOAT!
Hard to imagine a sleeper GTO, but that's exactly what this incredible 1967 GTO hardtop represents. Virtually stock outside, but with a thunderous 428 cubic inch Poncho under the hood, it's an early GTO that definitely lives up to the legend.
This was a project that went all-out to create the ultimate Goat. Designed to impress, the bodywork was straightened, smoothed, and finessed into shape with enough care to make it stand out at shows. Sheetmetal is quite straight, including those long quarter panels, and you'll note in the photos that the doors are neatly centered in their openings and the gaps around the hood and trunk lid are precise. Since the joy was in the journey, this team took their time to get it right, and the results are evident. The paint is correct code N Burgundy, which looks fabulous on the vintage Pontiac body and thanks to modern urethane paint technology, it'll probably look this good for another 45 years. It's a few years old, so it's not perfect anymore and nobody can argue that the 1967 GTO wasn't a slam-dunk in the appearance department. All the GTO emblems were replaced, the chrome bumpers were refinished, and the mesh grille is crisp and sharp. And yes, this is a real code 42 GTO, not a rebadged Tempest or Lemans.
The interior was treated to all-new black upholstery, which is a correct rendering of its original 223-R combination. Using high-quality reproduction seat covers, new carpets, and beautifully detailed door panels, it has a very vintage and correct vibe inside. The black anchors the interior and keeps things subtle but the crisply detailed seats are definitely something you're going to want to show off. Options include the center console, complete with Hurst shifter for the 4-speed underneath, and it has all been restored to factory-fresh condition with new wood appliques. And yes, Pontiac fans, this car has factory A/C with all the components still intact. A set of auxiliary gauges under the dash help monitor the big V8 up front and an older Kenwood AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit has been snugged into the original dash location. The completely detailed trunk offers a fresh mat and a full-sized spare which wears its own matching cover, as well as the expected spatter-finish paint job.
The big news in this GTO is under the hood, where the original 389 was jettisoned and replaced by a muscle-bound 428 cubic inch V8 with Tri-Power. Thanks to Pontiac's use of the same block for almost all of their V8s of the period, it's a neat fit and while it won't pass for stock anymore, it's definitely a Tin Indian. From the body-colored engine enamel paint to the chrome valve covers, it looks right, although the braided stainless fuel lines kind of give things away. It exhales through a set of long-tube exhaust headers and a Flowmaster dual exhaust system, so it has that sound you've been looking for and the undercarriage, while not detailed, is certainly quite presentable. The 4-speed manual gearbox feeds a robust 12-bolt rear with a fat sway bar under it, so it's got handling to match its looks. Other notable upgrades include the lowered stance that's exactly right and a set of shiny Cragar mags wearing 215/65/15 BFGoodrich white letter radials that look great on the vintage Goat.
Delivering the kind of performance that GTO fans expect, this awesome red hardtop is a wolf in goat's clothing. Call today!
